Well I got half the bolts all the backs the one in back they came off so easy then I realized should take the hoses off well atleast the one at the back. Well that ***** won't come off and I see it being a problem when I go to get the valve cover off was gonna pry it but looks like plastic. Then half way done taking it off started raining. is there a easy way to get the ventilation tubes off? Part where it connects to the case itself

I usually pry them off. They do break some times, though. What about the other end (not on the valve cover)?

If you want to know if the engine is pumping air, use a compression gauge or pull the plugs and stick your finger in the hole.

You can tell if it's jumped time by setting the time mark to 0, checking that #1 is on top of stroke, pull the cap and see if the rotor is at 5 oclock.

sorry for abandoning this thread lol been ****ty outside but the crankcase ventilation hose has been broke just the stem on the valve covers there immersions Ohh well and I just took the other on off the air box but the stem on the crank ventilation is blocking it from coming up good. I'll break it off though need a new one anyways lol.

I was under the assumption that he did not have a compression gauge, only hand tools. As far as the rotor being at 5:00, I have not done a lot of work on the ZJ's. I was directed to this thread and I'm just trying to help.

Yea and your doing good. if the weather would be good then I'd be able to do stuff haha atleast it's not snow. I hope it's not a compression issue.
